Do you want to donate for the preservation and research of Finnish cultural heritage related to dogs? Even a small donation makes a big difference. The funds received will be used in full to fulfill the purpose of the Kennel Foundation and its Canine Museum.

A considerable part of the Canine Museum’s collections has been received as donations. The Canine Museum collects historical information, photographs and artifacts related to Finnish canine culture and native dog breeds. For practical reasons, it is not possible to receive and store all objects, offered to the museum. Collections are primarily increased in accordance with the collection policy plan drawn up by the museum. The museum is particularly interested in objects that have a story and photos, of which it is known when and where they were taken and who (persons and/or dogs) is in the picture.The museum decides on the digitization of objects and works and may also add them to the online museum for viewing.

Donate artifacts

The Canine Museum accepts donations from associations and individuals. The museum collects historical information related to Finnish dog breeds and Finnish canine culture, such as memories, photographs, films and objects. The better the story of the object is known, the more interesting it is. Information about manufacturing, acquisition, ownership, and use history, as well as personal history related to the object, increase its value. The museum decides on digitizing and adding objects and works to the online museum for viewing.
